Description

A stunning Scandinavian textured glass 'Polaris' decorative bottle vase. Made by Riihimaki (also known as Riihimaen Lasi Oy) of Finland, and designed by Nanny Still in 1967, pattern number 1720. Still bears the remains of the original factory label. Quite unusual for Riihimaki, this is made from Neodymium glass (also known as Alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions. It appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures). This is due to the presence of Neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass.

Size

Measures approx 7.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
